Most of us would take a crisp Riesling or juicy Shiraz over the afore mentioned beverages any day.

But perhaps the greatest quality of alcohol, not always for the better, is that it can be made, in its simplest forms, out of pretty much anything, given a little time, sugar and yeast.

Prisoners have been known to whip up illicit batches of hooch in their cell using smuggled fruit and sugar, while the Inuits, so desperate for a drop of juice, created a “wine” made from dead seagull.

But while some of the drinks on this list are unashamedly revolting, others are merely a little off-piste in their direction, making up an eclectic list of weird and wonderful beverages.

Scroll through to see some of the most unusual concoctions the drinks world has to offer…

    Oddly enough I would try this one. I love Turkish Delight and my favourite tipple is prosecco, I think that would work. Oh and I bet it looks very feminine *not sexest* 😆
